I would like to Import following xls [http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/weo/2015/02/weodata/download.aspx] into SQL by SSIS. My SQL table should look like

ISO            Code             year            rate
AFG         PCPIPCH       2008            26.41
AFG                PCPIPCH       2009          -6.81
AFG               PCPIPCH        2010           2.17

but the xls has a different listing like

ISO               Code                 2008           2009            2010        2011
AFG                   PCPIPCH           26.41         -6.81             2.17         ...

What would be in your view the most efficient way to Import by SSIS?

Shall I go for coding like
INSERT INTO ISO, Code , year (2008), rate
SELECT ISO, Code, 2008....

or something like Looping in SSIS with variables (year) +1?

thx for your Input
